uptown houston holiday lighting

Every winter for the past 33 years, Houstonians have looked forward to Uptown Houston’s Uptown Holiday Lighting event. However, due to COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, this annual light celebration won’t be in full force as anticipated. The public lighting event has been canceled for 2020.

With that being said, Uptown Houston still intends on spreading as much holiday cheer as possible. This year, the district plans to do that through a virtual lens. 

On November 26th, the evening of Thanksgiving, fans can tune into a virtual countdown video that promises a different kind of view. The video will feature footage of Uptown holiday memories over the years, captured both by its organizers and the general public. 

Uptown Houston welcomes the public to share their own memories of this event on its Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channel. By uploading, viewers are entering for the chance to see their own memories built within this nostalgic montage.  

The celebration definitely doesn’t stop when this virtual event is over. Ushering in and continuing throughout the holidays, this festive light show will be on view for weeks to come. 

Visitors can expect to see over 300 20-foot-tall trees lining Post Oak Boulevard for a span of two miles. These trees will be lit up with a mesmerizing array of colors around the clock, thanks to integrated lighting technology. 

To gather up some holiday cheer, check out this fun family feature on November 26th. Or, take a stroll or casual drive down Post Oak Boulevard anytime after this festive event! For viewing details, check out Uptown Houston’s Facebook or Instagram page.
